Ok, so after a week of hard climbing out at J-Tree, I have come to the conclusion that this harness officially kicks ass. The added gear loops are awesome for organizing your pieces for leading, the wider legs and waist straps make hanging around so much more comfortable, and its durable. After taking a couple of good whippers and running along the side of the rock face, all that happened were some scrapes on the paint of the buckles. I really like the two belay loops as well, makes climbing up with a rope in tow a whole lot less complicated matter. Overall, I love this harness!
